america. >> hello, i am mitt romney, and as you probably know, i am the republican candidate for president. i would like to start off by saying that our thoughts and prayers are with those on the east coast who have been affected by hurricane sandy. americans come together in times of crisis. our first impulse is to come to the aid of those in need. this time will be no different, and we will help our fellow americans recover from this tragic storm. in just a few short days, americans will go to the polls and cast their ballots. many of us are thinking about election day this tuesday, november 6, but we should also spend some time thinking about november 7. that is the day we will know whether we made the right choice, whether we settled for more of the same disappointment and decline, or whether we took the first step down a new path that will deliver a real recovery and real change. when you step into the voting booth, i would ask you to think about the last four years. four years ago, candidate obama promised to do so very much, but he has fallen so very short. after all of the petty pa
threat. three big storms, one after the other, about to pound the west coast. >>> and, made in america. do you want to make a difference, creating american jobs? david muir tonight shows us how to do it together for a happy holiday. >> we're in! >> we're in! >>> good evening. right now, millions and millions of americans are lining up to take a chance on a giant dream. a powerball ticket that could be worth more than half a billion dollars. the biggest in its history. the drawing is tonight. and some people have been willing to wait 2 1/2 hours in the long lines in arizona, while coast to coast, tickets are flying across the counters, 130,000 sold every minute. and that adds up to 7 million tickets sold every hour. so, we asked abc's steve osunsami to make his way into the vault where the lottery balls are kept under lock and key and tell us about all the americans hoping tonight is their night. >> reporter: if this is lottery fever -- >> it only takes one. >> that's the winner. >> the boats and the house and the cars. >> reporter: then millions of americans are trying to catch it. buy
because of america's belief in human dignity. over the last several decades, our two countries became strangers. but today, i can tell you that we always remain hopeful. you gave us hope and we bore witness to your courage. we saw the activists dressed in white visit the families of political prisoners on sundays and monks protesting peacefully in the streets. we learned of ordinary people who organized relief teams to respond to a cyclone, and heard the voices of students and the beats oh of hip-hop artists projecting the sound of freedom. and we were inspired by the fierce dignity of aung sung suu chi as she proved no human can be truly in prison if hope burns in your heart. when i took office as president, i sent a message to those governments who ruled by fear. i said, in my inauguration address, we will extend a hand if you're willing to unclench your fist. over the last year and a half, a dramatic transition has begun. as the dictatorship of five decades has loosened its grip. the desire for change has been met by political reform. a civilian now leads the government. and a parl
: where is america 2012, 236 years after its birth, and where is it going? the challenge for the next administration are both immediate and deep. no great country has sustained its position without a strong economic foundation. the new president and new congress must deal with the fiscal cliff, partisan gridlock has prevented us from making the hard decisions about where we need to spend and where we need to cut and how we bridge a growing economic inequality. while we remain the richest country in the world, the global economic order is rebalancing. the application of american power is changing as we have seen in the response to the arab spring. old alliances need redefining. the pivot to the east demands understanding between china and the united states and the realization that it is not a zero-sum game but also problems that transcend relationships among nations, questions of climate change, global health and the progress of science. science and technology are giving us extraordinary insight into who we are and how much we share. they have enormous power for both state and non-stat
because that's supposed to be your lot in life is get married and have children. so i think america has a lot of all of that together and their legislation and the things you're asking for in getting people to realize this human rights. this human rights and we are all human. african-american, latina, all of them are human. so how is the next that going towards moving towards an area of getting terms that are acceptable but don't get people coming in now, you say i'm a feminist that are except the red flag and people don't listen to you. so how do we move and strive to take the religious stuff out of the marriage and just take that out. same thing with the hospitals. yes catholic hospitals, but they have the right not to service people. and if they have the right not to service, where they getting federal funds come in medicaid, money? so when you have to look at it, a lot of religion is smashed into hurricanes. so are there any groups that are targeting that area quite >> i'll be really quick on this one can say a lot of the advocacy organizations, including ours are working on moving
america from the bottom up. when people have more money in their pocket. when families have more wemmingt and people get jobs. and the greatest issue in america today is jobs. and the reason is mom and dad are working, the family is stronger t children are stronger. it all works for a stronger america and stronger communities. that is what mitt romney and paul ryan will give us, stronger families and stronger communities. and it's not theory. i have to tell you ladies and gentlemen if there's anything we need no government today it's people who know how to create jobs. we need that and mitt romney has been a successful job creator and when they attack him those are people that don't understand how to rise america. he's a proven job creator and then he went into government. and he took the state of massachusetts from deficits to surplus, from job losses to job gains. and let's think about his pure leadership capability in those olympics. he didn't lead with a title and he didn't lead with anything other than the ability of a human being to raise the bar of everybody else. you know what, my
in latin america, and it will have huge consequences for the western hemisphere and the world. >>> also, if you thought black friday was crazy, check out the sales in europe. i'll explain. but first here's my take. >>> it's thanksgiving weekend, america. time to reflect on our good fortune. it's also a time that most americans think about the unusual origins of the united states, a land of immigrants. we see o ourselves as special in this way, and we are, except that we're not quite as exceptional as we think anymore. something fascinating has happened over the last two decades. other countries have been transforming themselves into immigrant societies, adopting many of america's best ideas, even improving on them. if you watched our immigration special back in june or read my piece in "time" magazine, you would know that canada and australia both have a higher percentage of people who are foreign born compared to the united states. in fact, on this dimension, america, which once led the world, looks like most western countries. germany and france, for example, have about the same perce
in their company. they're making products for america. they and their family and all the people who work at marvin, they did build this. [ cheers and applause ] i want to thank this guy. he wants to downgrade his title from governor to senator, but i'm nonetheless ready to make sure we do that. so i need to make sure you elect this man as the next united states senator from virginia. i need him. we've got to have him. thanks also to congressman. appreciate his leadership and support here. he's saying you're knocking on doors and making calls for him and for me. that makes a real difference. i appreciate it. how many of you have voted already or have knocked on a door or made a call? wow. that is great. thank you. thanks, guys. keep on battling. this is a krcritical place for . this election makes a big difference. you understand that. this election will have enormous consequence. i also want to thank ricky skaggs for entertaining you before we got here. done quite a job. he's been traveling with us around the country and helping us at events. it's just marvelous to have folks in the entertainment

to do, i tell people if you want to be an optimist about america, stand on your head because the country looks so much better from the bottom up than it the does from the studio david and i are in overlooking washington, d.c. it's still exploding wth enrepreursp and i think that one of the things that the next president has to do is really convey excitement about that and literally sit down with everyone in the business from one end to the other and say what are the things we have to do to amplify it, to take it to scale. because the days when someone is going to come to your town with a 25,000 person factory, that's over. ford will come, but it may be with a 2, 500 person robot factory so we need 50 people starting jobs for 20, 20 people starting jobs for 30, 30 people starting jbs for 50. that's what we need and we need it at scale. >scale. >> rose: a new president faces for his country a diminished role for america or what? >> i want to go back to your opening, charlie and something jon meacham said which i certainly believe but the american dream is at stake. we have to pass on a ris
a shot at the middle class. most of america would rather pay taxes than they would drawing an unemployment check. that's what we operate under, that assumption, and we need as part of this taxing the wealthy to pay a little bit more and some reasonable balanced cuts, but more of a 1:1 ratio rather than what republicans want to do. you need a jobs component, too. >> this comes down to negotiations, and from what is reported about what the president told the basers in that meeting today, doesn't that send a real hard line message to mitch mcconnell, and that's what's lacking in all of this? >> i think mitch mcconnell is a little worried. you saw some of these people on election night. you saw karl rove's response. you saw mcconnell the next day. you saw speaker boehner, who is the most -- i think the most flexible of the group. they know that they're going to have to come to the table and give on a lot of things. not just that we won the election, but when i see the organizing around the president's message. he'll travel the country and talk to people, and the country is over
